If they don't like it, they can find other employment. No one is forcing them to play in the NFL, which is why I disagree with the slavery comparison.
Exactly - they had the option to go work for someone else and make about the same amount of money

Their is only 1 NFL
Yes they can play in the CFL or UFL but they will not get the same wages

AN NFL player said that their were parallels in the current NFL system to slavery
He makes millions and he STILL feels this way

And he is not the only one I assure you

These guys are saying something about a system that they belong to and what cracks me up is there are people outside looking in saying the NFL system isn't like that?
